Utah Rock Art Research Association


When visiting petroglyph or pictograph sites, please be aware of the following:

  1. Touching or applying any substance to rock art surfaces, including water, causes damage.
  2. Please do not camp or build fires within one-quarter mile of a rock art site.
  3. Please do not disturb or collect artifacts or features at rock art sites. Take photos. Appreciate them, but leave them in place.
  4. Refrain from disturbing soil to expose subsurface rock art or archaeology, or participate in disruptive activities or behaviors that may cause damage to sites.
  5. Minimize the number of vehicles going to a site. Stay on existing roads and trails. Avoid driving on rocks, vegetation, or macrobiotic soil crusts.
  6. Report new rock art destruction, graffiti, or activity near the site, or site vandalism.
  7. It’s important to respect the sacredness of these sites still very much recognized by today's native peoples.
